Crash Course: Learn to Knit or Crochet

Have you wanted to learn to knit or crochet but are not sure you're really into it.  Maybe just need a refresher?  Throughout the day on Friday and Saturday, we will have a drop-in booth with kit available for learning how to knit or crochet.  This is very much a crash-course style lesson  that is geared to showing you the absolute basics and to see if we can get you hooked... (sorry, no knitting pun available).
